Skyros holidays now offers 2020 UK staycations 

Skyros holidays is delighted to present a series of week-long holidays at The Grange by the Sea, Skyros HQ in the Isle of Wight. This is an ideal 2020 UK staycation, especially for solo travellers, where you can be sure of a warm welcome and know that all measures have been taken to meet government guidelines, ensuring that you have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

See The Grange hotel Covid-19 policy here.

After months of lockdown, escaping across the Solent to a lush, green island in the south of the UK boasting the most hours of sunshine in the UK, does sound very appealing. Add to this the opportunity to meet likeminded people - albeit socially-distanced - and the chance to explore your creativity, rethink life's priorities and explore nature and coastline walks. Enjoy Shanklin's long sandy beach and take a dip. It's warm enough now.

Choose your masterclass each week and also enjoy afternoon drop-in classes. Options include yoga, writing, mindfulness, painting, comedy, creativity and more.

Facilitators are exceptional comedy writers, singers, authors, artists, therapists and yoga teachers including:

All meals are included and lunch and dinner is prepared by Spanish chef Alfonsa Nevado-Barras, in keeping with the Skyros tradition of providing Mediterranean meals in Greece.
